The wait is finally over as the UEFA Euro 2020 will go down in Rome tonight (Friday) with Turkey facing off against Italy in a Group A encounter at Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Turkey enjoyed a fine qualifying campaign for the Euros, finishing behind France in Group H, losing just one of the ten games they played while letting in a mere three goals.
Italy, meanwhile, after having faced the ignominy of missing out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, have been on a roll under Roberto Mancini.
The Azzurri cruised through their Euro Qualifiers, topping Group J with utmost comfort as they won each of their ten games, scoring 37 times and letting in just four goals.
Italy enjoyed a fine run in the UEFA Nations League as well, topping Group A1 to book a place in the finals of the tournament and go into the European Championships as one of the favourites, having been on a brilliant 27-game unbeaten run, last losing a match in September 2018.
Turkey XI (4-1-4-1): Cakir, Celik, Soyuncu, Demiral, Meras, Yokuslu, Karaman, Tufan, Calhanoglu, Yazici, Yilmaz
Italy XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma, Florenzi, Chiellini, Bonucci, Spinazzola, Locatelli, Jorginho, Barella, Berardi, Immobile, Insigne
